Declarations of Interest
No interests were declared at the meeting.
The Sub Committee received a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) regarding an application by Mr Selladurai Anuseelan for the grant of a personal licence. An objection to the application has been made by Essex Police on crime prevention grounds.
Mr Anuseelan attended the hearing and gave evidence. Mr Ashford and Keely Drain of the Police Licensing Unit were also in attendance to present the objection to the application.
The Sub Committee considered all the evidence and submissions that had been made at the meeting and the written documentation that had been presented prior to the hearing.
The Sub Committee also had regard to the National Guidelines and the Borough Council's Statement of Licensing Policy.
On the basis of the evidence before it, the Sub Committee accepted the concerns expressed by the Police and there were no exceptional and compelling circumstances which would justify the grant of the application. The Sub Committee therefore:
That the application for the grant of a personal licence be refused.
